Big White Bird

When he came to us, he was a scared little thing, rejected by his owner, along with his gold-laced buddy, because they had turned out to be boys.  He had been named "Big Bird," but he was not big.  However, he was, indeed, a Bird, so he has always been just "Bird" to us.   Bird has grown into a very handsome Polish rooster.  He chooses not to live with the other chickens, in their nice safe pen, at night.  Instead, he roosts on our front porch.  He can be relied upon to crow nearly exactly at 3:00AM each morning.  When we reset the clocks for daylight savings time,... read more

My Ancona

April 2015, I went to Long Island Poultry to pick out my 3 new chicks. I had 4 hens at home that were just shy of a year. I knew I wanted to get Wellsummers, but there was this one little yellow puff ball with 3 black dots on her head and I just had to get her also. The guy at Long Island Poultry did not know her breed. He had received a bunch of chicks from a friend and she was one of them. I named her Wendy. And Wendy LOVES to chat! My husband calls her Chatty Patty!. When I clean their coop she comes in with me and chats to me, like she is asking me what I am doing.... read more

aart's chicken page

  • by aart

Someone asked me to make this page to post this pic. kind of out of focus, so not the greatest 2 week old home hatched chick, (Wellie cock over blue laying EE, so hopefully pullet and hopefully carries a blue egg gene) was not keen to explore the newly opened run....calling it 'chicken' was just met with a 'well, duh'.   Someone tweaked the photo...maybe this will work better:         read more

lonely little chick

  • by RTL

Hi everyone. I don't have pics yet and this may be the wrong place for this post. I have 10 babies and nine have rejected one of their own. We have them in the house in a big box with a warming lamp. A few days ago we awoke to find one of the chicks on her side shaking and she could not walk.We put her in a box by herself and waited, fully expecting her to die, but she rallied and is getting much stronger. She eats and drinks well, but she is loud and chirps as she looks toward the other chicks and pecks at the side of her new home.She wants to return to the fold, but... read more

Is My Jersey Giant Sick?

I have a 6-day-old Jersey Giant chick that I bought from a Southern States. I have noticed that her poops have red blotches in them. I have dissected one of the poops and found that the red blotches seem to be flakes of some sort. She is housed in a brooder with 14 other chicks of various breeds, 8 of which are 6 days older than her, but they all get along fine. She is acting healthy and alert as the others. I feed them medicated chick starter. I'm just worried that its some sort of disease or something. Any ideas? Thanks! read more

Runt of the Coop -   Though this sweet heart mamma is the second oldest in the coop, she is the second smallest for my standard sized Hens. (If you dont include my baby EE and Speckled Sussex) Every day she lays an lovely sized light brown egg, and seems to love being pet.
